Andrzej Bargiel – and Films
Andrzej Bargiel traded two table tennis paddles and a pocket knife for his first pair of wooden skis. From humble roots as one of eleven children, he became the three time Polish champion in ski mountaineering, and has skied all the highest peaks in Russia. He is renowned for his cutting-edge descents from four 8,000-metre peaks, including an impossible ski descent of K2. This fall he’ll attempt a world record speed ascent and descent of Mt. Everest. He joins us in Banff along with his brother, filmmaker Bartek Bargiel, for an on stage interview.
Followed by Festival films. Films will be announced online October 4.
